The United States should abandon the one-China policy that has been in place for decades and recognize Taiwan (aka Republic of China). This would strike at the heart of the CCP’s self-image, humiliating and weakening them in the eyes of the world. It would, in essence, put Communist China in its place and likely even have economic ramifications, making their “Belt-and-Road” initiative less attractive to nations around the globe. Taiwan is now a functioning democracy off the coast of the world’s most populace totalitarian state.

Is Trump Calling Out Xi Jinping?

Patrick J. Buchanan, The American Conservative

China can choke North Korea to death. But China can also step back and let Pyongyang become a nuclear-weapons state, though that could mean Seoul and Tokyo following suit, which would be intolerable to Beijing. Before we go down this road, President-elect Trump and his foreign-policy team ought to think through just where it leads—and where it might end.

North Korea: Friendly Proliferation May Beat a Nuclear Umbrella
